The feel of euphoria…the out of this world experience and indulgence…an indescribable experience with gloomy feelings or maybe guilty pleasures…an orgasm after masturbation!
Masturbation is not strange to anyone and this act cuts across every religion, race and gender. Masturbation is when you derive sexual pleasure from fondling or playing with your genitals ( clitoris/vagina or the penis), usually with your fingers or sometimes the use of sex toys to achieve an orgasm.
Despite the myths, guilt and embarrassment from masturbation, the act is as right and good as when you sneeze, cough, eat or yawn with no ill health effects.
